The Nikon Z f has had an active rumour cycle over the last months or so. The announcement date either got pushed back, or the initial rumors were incorrect as to when we might see the camera. However, it has been confirmed that we won't be waiting much longer.

Nikon Rumors has nailed down the final specifications for the upcoming retro-styled shooter from Nikon.

Nikon Z f Specifications (Rumored)

  • Black camera body
  • 24.4 MP BSI-CMOS sensor
  • Weight: 700g (inc. battery, the Z5 is 590g, the Z6II is 615g )
  • Dimensions: 144mm x 101mm
  • Up to 30fps (JPG/HEIF)
  • 4k 60 video
  • USB C PD (fast-charging technology based on the USB-C standard)
  • ISO 100-64,000 (for comparison the Z6II ISO range is 100-51,200)
  • EN-EL15 battery
  • The Z f logo is moved to the left (the Zfc has it on the right)
  • Dual memory card slots (SD+MicroSD) – this is probably why the first reports came out with only one memory card slot, the second slot could be hidden and be used just like the internal memory on some cameras
  • Pixel Shift: new high-res mode will be implemented for the first time in a Nikon mirrorless camera
  • August-September announcement, shipment before the end of 2023
  • Improved autofocus compared to Z5/Z6II
  • A few different lens kits/bundles will be available in the $2,000-$2,500 price range
  • Price for body only: $1,999
  • One of the bundles will be with the Nikkor Z 40mm f/2 (SE) lens (no new lens will be introduced with the Zf)
  • Very similar (but improved) design/layout from the Nikon Zfc
  • Small LCD screen on top for aperture display
  • New 3rd function on the sub lever of the shutter speed dial (besides photo/video) for B&W mode (B&W/Photo/Movie)
  • Has a little grip/bump like the Nikon Df (see the mockup pictures)
  • Better build quality compared to the Nikon Zfc
  • Fully articulating screen
  • Code name N2137

  1. If Canon made something like this, I would buy it. But, they wont...
    I would too, but only if built like the Canon F1 new. I once checked the former Nikon Zf, it wasn't convincing at all, felt rather "cheap".
